Hello everyone!

 

This is my first post! Nice to meet you all!

 

I am wondering if anyone has any advice/tips regarding handheld operation. The setup I will be using is the Red One - luckily with the Bomb EVF - and Ziess Compact Prime CP2 lenses. I will also be using a ET Mantis shoulder mount.   Attached is the setup thus far - any tips regarding operation, balancing, or handheld in general would be greatly appreciated.

 

All the best!
